A special note for our guests: Royal Tea Service will resume during Afternoon Tea with Santa this November & December.
Served in the luxurious parlors of this grand mansion built by Lyman Robison in 1882, our Afternoon Tea is a special affair you won’t soon forget. This famous Colorado mansion is located just two short blocks away from the train depot, in Canon City, Colorado.
Your Royal Tea Service begins with a glass of champagne to enjoy as you peruse the menu, featuring not only classic selections such as English Breakfast, Earl Grey, and Jasmine, but also unique and seasonal tea blends including Chocolate Cherry Bomb, Climbers High Chai, and Mango Tango.
Every Royal Gorge Mansion tea experience includes your choice of tea served in English-style porcelain tea pots, and a three-tiered presentation of dainty and delicious finger sandwiches, petit fours, and house-baked scones served with Devonshire cream, locally sourced jams and whipped butter. Your experience ends with a guided tour of the elegant Robison Mansion built 1882-1884 by Lyman Robison.
If you are celebrating an occasion, a selection of sparkling, red and white wines, homemade hot chocolate, and other sweet & savory goodies are available for purchase to enhance the experience.
Guests will drive themselves directly to the mansion for this experience. Feel free to arrive up to 30 minutes early to experience the manicured grounds and stunning exterior design accents of this historic estate. Note that there is no train ride involved in our Royal Tea Service experience.
